Manchester City star Phil Foden has named Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante as the toughest opponent he has ever faced, just over a week ahead of the UEFA Champions League final between the two clubs.
The Blues, who travel to Villa Park to face Aston Villa on the final day of the Premier League season on Sunday afternoon, will face City in Porto next Saturday evening, with head coach Thomas Tuchel looking to earn his first trophy as Blues boss.
And speaking to Sky Sports, City winger was aksed to name the toughest opponent he has ever come up against.
“He’s probably the most obvious one, but it’s Kante,” said Foden.
“He’s just everywhere. You think you’ve got away from him but he’s always just by your side.
“He does everything. He runs everywhere. He’s such a great player. I’d probably say he’s my toughest opponent I’ve played against.”
Foden seems to be in complete agreement with Manchester United star Paul Pogba, who has also admitted that the toughest player he has ever come up against is the Chelsea star.
Pogba said: “My toughest opponent on the pitch? To be honest, it’s tough against N’Golo Kante.”
